Congratulations to the Class of 2014

29 mei 2014

Last Friday our 76 Year 13 students graduated in style.

  • Graduation 2014
  • Graduation 2014

The Graduation Ceremony is a rite of passage, marking the end of each student’s time at BISS Puxi and their readiness to move on to the next stage of their life.

The auditorium was packed with students and their families, friends and teachers, and each student received their Graduation Certificate to resounding applause, which was much deserved. As a year group, they are held in high regard and with great affection. They are hardworking, mature and deeply supportive of one another, and they have shown strong leadership among the students of the school.

The demanding IB exam period brought out the best in them, and it was good to see them tackling its challenges with determination, confidence, care for each other and, wherever possible, a smile. It was clear that they had been well prepared by their teachers and had listened carefully to and acted on their advice. They know when to be serious, but they have a great sense of fun too. It was great to see them finally able to relax, to reflect on their achievements with pride and pleasure, and simply to enjoy the company of their families and friends on Friday evening.

On Sunday evening, the party moved on to the sophisticated surroundings of the Shangri-La Hotel in downtown Pudong. Friday’s academic dress was put aside in favour of smart dinner suits and gorgeous dresses, and the theme was very much one of celebration as the whole year group, along with their parents, families and teachers, met together for the last time. The formal dinner was interspersed with light hearted speeches, music, conversation, much laughter and many, many photographs. It was certainly a memorable evening, and the celebrations continued long into the night.

Our graduates have much to look forward to. They plan to head off to different universities around the world – UK, USA, Canada, Korea, Hong Kong, Switzerland and Sweden among many others. One of the particular challenges of completing an international education is seeing friends heading off far away to different parts of the world. Keeping in touch over long distances is much easier than it used to be, but the students know they will have to work hard at this – and that the rewards of doing so will be great. I wish each member of the Class of 2014 every success and happiness as they head off into what I am sure will be a very exciting future.
